Guitar Center presents an evening with acclaimed blues/rock guitarist Kenny Kenny Wayne Shepherd as the latest installment of their ongoing series that unites music icons with aspiring artists. Past sessions have featured Joe Stariani, Slash, RZA, Dave Mustaine, Pete Rock and Joe Bonamassa.

Guitar virtuoso Bonamassa shares, “I would probably spend my (hypothetical) child’s entire tuition at Guitar Center. I’ve spent many hours in its Guitar Room. I’m not going to have children, so I teach. I do about 40 to 50 things like Guitar Center Sessions a year around the world. I love getting to teach.”

Next Wednesday, it’s Shepherd’s turn to share insights into his songwriting process, technical tips and, of course, information on the new Fender Signature Series Stratocaster that he designed. The event is free and open to all, though space is limited.

Guitar Center Pasadena is located at 2660 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena. For more information, visit
